Before I sat down this afternoon I prayed and told God I was tired of writing.  He immediately sparked in me a motivation to make his Word beautiful!  I picked up this calligraphy marker ($2) at my local Walmart  and headed to Pinterest for some inspiration and step by step instructions!

  

I learned a secret. We can do this girls!  There are so many good links that all we need is a little time and a lot of paper to practice!

  

3 Pros about learning to Hand Letter Scripture:

1. It makes God’s word BEAUTIFUL!  God’s Word brings beauty to my life, so I want to see it look beautiful on the paper.

In the first bible study I wrote, “Refocused,” I directed us everyday to use the “Write it Out” method: 

Write it out directions: Make God’s Word look beautiful. You may write out only part of the verse, or the whole verse. Make some words bigger than others that stick out to you. Use cursive and print. Make it something you will look back on and treasure.

2.  It MOTIVATES me and my  daughters to write out his Word! Therefore, we are talking about it together and learning it together.

  

3. It helps us MEMORIZE his word.  Ya’ll, let me just say, I wrote this verse so many times today, I can quote it to you now.  Therefore, I can think about it anytime I want and the Lord will bring me hope and direction from it.  Not to mention, power against the enemy.  Can I get an amen?!

I’d love to see some pics of your work!

Today we are studying how long God’s love is for us, as we consider how long he will walk among us.  This morning I read this chapter, and thought about it all day.  All day while I homeschooled my kids, ran them to their different extracurricular activities, grocery shopped with all 3 of them in tow, and cooked them dinner.

The thing God kept reminding me was:  He was there among us, in our midst during all of this everyday stuff.

He was there this morning  when I felt like taking a day off the daily grind.  (Thankfully I persevered 🙂

He was there when I wanted to ask my daughter how she couldn’t remember how to add her simple addition problems.

He was there when I wanted to yell at their bickering, helping me take a deep breath instead and kindly direct them to “pick out of the get a long jar.”

He was there when I went over budget at the grocery store and helped me swallow my mistake with a gulp of grace for myself.

He was there when my daughter spilt milk all over my husband.

He was there in the fun times when we were writing out scripture together and smiling.

He was there when we were sitting around the table for dinner, laughing and joking.

(As you can see, my day got progressively better:)

The  point is, He was walking among us every step today, seeing the good, bad and the UGLY.  And he was loving us every single second.

Practice being aware of His loving presence!

Leviticus 26

9“I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you.

10You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest!

11I will live among you, and I will not despise you.    

12I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people.

13I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high.
